New York Times bureau targeted in cyberattack

The FBI is investigating cyber intrusions targeting reporters of the New York Times and is looking into whether Russian intelligence agencies are responsible for the acts, a U.S. official said Tuesday.

The New York Times reported Tuesday evening that the attempted cyberattack targeted the newspaper's Moscow bureau, and that there was no evidence that it was successful. No internal systems at the newspaper have been compromised, a New York Times spokeswoman said.

"We are constantly monitoring our systems with the latest available intelligence and tools," spokeswoman Eileen Murphy said in a statement.

CNN first reported the FBI's investigation. A U.S. official who was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity confirmed that an investigation was underway.

The news comes as federal authorities continue to investigate a breach of the Democratic National Committee that outside cybersecurity experts have attributed to Russian intelligence agencies and that led to the posting of embarrassing internal emails.
